Dodging the Memory Hole 2016 Scholarship Projects
Dodging the Memory Hole 2016: Saving Online News forum organizers initiated a travel scholarship program for select graduate students to attend the forum at the UCLA Library on October 13–14, 2016. The travel scholarship committee was especially interested in working with students from underrepresented and underserved communities.
